    Has anyone found a way to remove dashboard widgets? My problem is I have 3 clocks and 2 temperature panels. I really don't need but one of each and I have no idea how they came up nor how to get rid of all but 1.

    Panther Bugs and Incompatibilities (Post here)

    I installed on a g4/500 using the Update avenue. Everything went fine. I tried the same routine on my 17 inch powerbook and it screwed up everything. Had to reformat and start from scratch. Other than that, I am impressed. Well worth the price of admission

    brand of RAM in 17pb?

    Both Chips are in the same port. Both are visible when you take the back plate off. As for Brand, anybody's guess. Apple doesn't identify their RAM source. I had that same problem. Run your Hardware Test Disk. It will tell you if you have bad RAM. But I will not tell you which one is bad. You...

    Backing up a drive with CCC

    Don't know what happened in your case but it has worked flawlessly for me. You have to turn Schedular on in order for it to work. It is off by default.

    How do you get a DSL router to work with Earthlink DSL service?

    On mine through Sprint, I had to telnet into the router and do a setup. In that setup, PPoE was an option to turn on. If using OS X, you can do it through terminal. Don't exactly remember the steps but their tech support (EarthLink) can help and they are good. If using OS 9, there is a small...

    Stupid iCal

    I have "played" with iCal myself. I am not really inspired with it. I also have Palm loaded for my PDA and even though iCal somewhat syncs with the Palm, it isn't as reliable. Maybe it is a work in progress but for a supposedly release version it is not impressive at all.

    10.1 Speed Not Acceptable

    Emptying trash of system items. I had a back-up on an external drive and I could not delete the old data. The drive is also formatted with a bastard driver and the Apple Drive formatter will not recognize it as a drive (firewire). I had another problem with permissions trying to install...

    10.1 Speed Not Acceptable

    I guess speed is relative. I was doing some housekeeping in OS 9 earlier this week and while the finder and web browser did seem a little faster, I soon went back to OS X. I have had few problems with X. The biggest problem I have had has been with permissions set by the OS to keep we UNIX...
